Freddy Holt was played by Connor Price in Carrie (2013).

He was considered a nerd at Ewen High School. He is friends with Tommy Ross and is not to be seen as very popular. He seemed to have friendly relationship with Carrie. He even helped her once regarding the computer. During the Black Prom he was filming the event with a portable camera. He also filmed the Carrie's humiliation there instead of helping them.

He was killed by Carrie White in cold blood when she noticed that he was filming because in her eyes, he was filming her humiliation like the Ultras did regarding the shower incident and because of allowing through his actions Tommy's death.
